Pterobdella amara is redescribed from specimens from the type locality in India, and from the type host in Queensland, Australia. A neotype is designated from the type locality. The presence of conspicuous finlike bodies along the lateral margins of P. amara was greatly exaggerated in the original description. The trachelosome and anterior portion of the urosome are wide and flat, but there are no finlike bodies present. The urosome tapers abruptly posterior to the flattened portion, becomes… Expand
A new deep-sea fish leech of the bipolar genus Pterobdellina stat. rev. (Hirudinea: Piscicolidae) parasitic on the Antarctic toothfish Dissostichus mawsoni (Perciformes: Nototheniidae)
A new Antarctic fish leech with unique external appearance is described and assigned to the bipolar genus Pterobdellina Bennike & Bruun, 1939 . The systematic rank of the latter is elevated from aExpand
A New Deep-Sea Fish Leech (Hirudinida: Piscicolidae) from the North East Pacific Ocean
Galatheabdella epshteini is described from depths of 900 to 2,400 m off the northwest coast of the United States. Leeches are elongate, up to 50 mm total length. Body is smooth, lacking papillae,Expand
A New Deep-Sea Fish Leech (Hirudinida: Piscicolidae) from the North East Pacific Ocean
TLDR
Galatheabdella epshteini is described from depths of 900 to 2,400 m off the northwest coast of the United States and has pulsatile vesicles, 6 pairs of testisacs, accessory gland cells on atrial cornu, conducting tissue, mycetomes, and fused postceca with fenestrae. Expand
New locality record for the parasitic leech Pterobdella amara , and two new host stingrays at Ningaloo Reef, Western Australia
TLDR
An individual of the cowtail stingray was identified at Ningaloo Reef, Western Australia as having a high number of parasitic leeches and gnathiid isopods primarily inhabiting its mouth, jaw and gills. Expand
Marine and estuarine leeches (Hirudinida : Ozobranchidae and Piscicolidae) of Australia and New Zealand with a key to the species
TLDR
The marine leeches of Australia and New Zealand are a mix of endemic species, those of tropical or subtropical origin, and those of subantarctic origin. Expand
A COLLECTION OF FISH LEECHES (HIRUDINIDA: PISCICOLIDAE) FROM JAPAN AND SURROUNDING WATERS, INCLUDING REDESCRIPTIONS OF THREE SPECIES
TLDR
Seven species of leeches in 7 genera were collected and Stibarobdella loricata is synonymized with S. moorei based on tubercle patterns and the presence of papillae and a marginal fringe on the oral sucker. Expand
New Hosts, Including Marine Fishes Cultured in Japan, of Limnotrachelobdella okae (Hirudinida: Piscicolidae)
TLDR
Based on a wide range of fish hosts of different taxonomic groups including the present 4 new hosts, L. okae apparently shows no strict host specificity. Expand
Monograph of the North American freshwater fish leeches (Oligochaeta: Hirudinida ; Piscicolidae) and molecular phylogeny of the family Piscicolidae
TLDR
The phylogeny of the Piscicolidae was analyzed from combined sequence data of 18S rDNA, cytochrome c oxidase sub unit I (CO-I), nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide dehydrogenase subunit I (ND-I) and morphological data using parsimony, and supported as a monophyletic group, the traditional subfamilies based on morphology were not supported.

Phylogeny of the fish leeches (Oligochaeta, Hirudinida, Piscicolidae) based on nuclear and mitochondrial genes and morphology
TLDR
The phylogeny of the Piscicolidae was analysed from combined 18S rDNA, cytochrome c oxidase sub unit I (CO‐I), nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide dehydrogenase subunit I (ND‐I) and morphological data using parsimony and the traditional subfamilies based on morphology were not supported. Expand
